Wii U Exclusive Tokyo Mirage Sessions #FE Got a Change of Clothes to Hide the Heroine's Cleavage

 

In the latest Nintendo Direct, Bill Trinen from Nintendo Treehouse and Satoru Shibata from Nintendo Europe (depending on which version you watched) talked about Atlus’ Tokyo Mirage Sessions #FE (formerly Genei Ibun Roku #FE) mentioned that “the game is based in Japan, so we’re keeping its original voice over track.”

Unfortunately, there is something that isn’t being kept like the original, and that’s the clothes of the characters, or at least from what we can see for now, one particular costume worn by the heroine Tsubasa during an anime cutscene.

This is the original:

This is the new version, that we can see in the new trailer showcased during the latest Nintendo Direct. [...]

As you can see, Tsubasa’s cleavage, which is in plain sight in the original due to a sheer vest and a bikini top, has been covered with a top and a different vest in the localized version.

This change is worrisome, considering that the game has plenty content that could be consider mildly titillating, including gravure modeling featuring characters in bikini and more.

[...]

 This process of making the heroines’ clothes more tame, actually started even before the game got localized. One of the outfits for Kiria was changed to be less revealing with the addition of trousers prior to the Japanese release.

It’s definitely strange to see this kind of changes made in a completely random and arbitrary way in some parts of the game, while others that are arguably equally revealing remain untouched, and we’ll probably never know the full extent of it until we get our hands on the title.

Opinions about this? I don't see what problem the one in charge of the edit has with cleavage. Doesn't he (or she!) enjoy the views?
